    Twinz blocks???

    So I've been playing around a little pattern / color / stipes /etc... Here are two blocks made from the same "pattern" or block, but w/ different color and or fabric placement making them look different. I thought it would be fun if we all posted some pics of "twinz" blocks (made w/ the same pattern but look different w/ different fabrics)

    Sonic screwdrivers, fez, bow ties, and Stetsons are cool.

    I would have never guessed these those are from the same pattern.

    what a difference. never would have thought they were related.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    My post may be confusing the first two are the same pattern and the second two are the same pattern (all 4 aren't from the same pattern)

    Thanks for sharing. Color and fabric placement can really change the look of a block/quilt.

    My "twin" blocks don't look anywhere near as different as yours!

    The second pair are easier to see than the first - I'm still struggling with the apparent lack of horizontal seam across the center striped fabric. Good illustration of the point you are making.

    Here are some more variations of the first block (guess they might not count as twinz anymore, but I'm having a lot of fun seeing how I can change it up w/ just fabric)
